The Sea Queen At Kewalo's

ArtistMark N. Brown
InspirationThis painting of the Sea Queen sampan "Kula Kai" fishing boat was created directly on the pier of Kewalo Basin in Kakaaoko. Of course when you paint on the pier, it attracts the fishermen who would tell me their stories, and I am all ears!

Kula Kai is one of the last remaining sampan tuna fishing boats left. The men with their poles would hook the Tuna standing up and hoistthe fish over their shoulder and into the hold and then fling the line back into the churning water in the same motion. It took strength, balance and the knack to keep it going while the school of fish were biting.I have been lucky to paint the other sampan boats over the years: "Orion", "Neptune" and as of 2013, the last surviving one "Kula Kai"
